We seek an awakening of our highest ideals of equality and unity.
The aspiration of America is that all people are created equal and that each of us — no matter the color of our skin or the place of our birth — deserves respect and an opportunity to fulfill our dreams.
Unity Summer is fighting to make that aspiration a reality. The pain and ugliness of our present politics serve as a stark reminder that America is on a journey with many possible destinations. We can do better than to treat people as less than human because of their immigrant roots.
Trump & the GOP seek mass incarceration and deportations of families, blatantly discriminating against immigrants and people of color. Not only are these attacks an assault on our core values, they are an intentional strategy to gain power by dividing people. White against black. Non-immigrant against immigrant. Old against young.
We can and must do better. Together we can achieve an America that treats everyone with respect; an America that keeps mothers with their children and sisters with their brothers. Together we can ensure that everyone thrives.
